This bag is INSANELY light, and even packed with everything that I bring to and from work, I barely feel it on my back.
I can fit 3 sets of keys, my wallet, and my phone in the small upper pocket; 2 bottles of water/juice/etc in the mesh side pockets; and in the main pocket, I have managed to pack my work clothes when I changed into my jogging shorts/top (dress pants, short sleeve, and bra), along with a Medela 4-bottle cooler pack and Ameda Pump Kit, a kindle, and my ipod.
I haven't had this bag out in any rain harder than a sprinkle yet, so I can't attest to how leak proof it is, although I do know that the condensation from my water bottle doesn't appear to leak through the bag. I have read reviews from other sites indicating that the Speed Lites aren't terribly rain resistent, so if you plan to jog in the rain frequently you may want to invest in a rainproof cover for your bag.
I also use this backpack for good weather, half day, less than 5 miles round trip hikes. For that I can fit a 16oz nalgene in each mesh pocket, a 1L playtpus in the internal sleeve, lunch, a rain coat, and first aid kit. I have removed the "hip belt" as I find it getting in the way for my purposes. I would find the hip belt useful for bike riding or climbing. One thing to note is that the exit port for your hydration bladder tube is only over the right shoulder so if you are dead set on having it over your left shoulder this might not be the pack for you. I love how the tapered design and simple frame make it feel like I have nothing on my back.
I chose this pack over the 10L and 20L versions of this pack because the 10L would be a tight squeeze for a rain coat and lunch and the 20L had compression straps that I feared would get in the way of the side mesh pockets and I just didn't need them.
I recently bought one of these Speedlite 15s, tried it on a demanding hike and am completely taken by how comfortable it carries. I am so impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail, that I decided to start replacing other packs too. Looking at these new packs one realizes that the backpack industry has not been asleep all these years, but has come up with some really nifty, convenient things. For fit, I would recommend checking such gear in a store before ordering. That way one can see exactly how much each product can hold and how it feels. For me, the great outdoors have just gotten a bit more exciting.
"hydration System" , but that leaves almost no room for anything else.
I use it everyday to walk to work. It's very light and one can easily fit a pair of shoes in it, lunch etc. it's ideal for day trips. I washed it the other day. I just used soap and water as suggested (do not put in the washing machine) and this worked perfectly.
The blue color is nice and it has a good snug fit and is not bulky at all.
The backpack looks small from the outside but there is enough room for a big water bottle, a towel or shoes and a lunch box. It's however too small for folders or a laptop, iPad would work though.
